"Rebbe Tarfon"

This is a 360 degree spherical pano of the grave of Rebbe Tarfon, the Tanna, famed student of Rebbe Akiva. Rebbe Tarfon is quoted in the Passover Haggadah and throughohgt the Mishna. Some of his quotes from Pirke Avot (The Section of the Mishna containing the essence of the Wisdon and Transmission of the Oral Torah) especially meaningful to me. "The day is short, and the labor is huge, the workers are lazy, the reward is many and the Boss is pressing." He then said "It's not up to you to finish the task, but you aren't so free as to quit working on it". [Pirke Avot Chapter 2:15,16)
In the Gemara, Tarfon says we can kindle the Shabbat flames only with Olive Oil. The site is located on a hill overlooking the Olive groves in Kadita, a village on the outskirts of Tzfat and location of the book I photograhed, Harvest of Light
